The Library at Night

Alberto Manguel

NON FICTION. KNOPF, CANADA. 2006. 372 PAGES.

The Library at Night is Manguel’s most important book since A History of Reading. This time, Manguel attempts to answer the question: why do we believe that we can organize the universe? From the libraries of his childhood to the ‘complete’ libraries of the Internet, from Greece, Rome and China to Islam and Europe of the Enlightenment, from Alexandria de Auschwitz, Manguel takes us on a journey of discovery that includes forbidden, bizarre and imaginary libraries and among whose readers are Borges, Carnegie, Dracula, Michelangelo. The Library at Night is a fascinating voyage through Manguel’s mind, memory and vast knowledge of books and civilizations.
